Norbert and I have made more updates to tlmgr.  We want to push this out
as soon as possible, since (among other things) this version "fixes" on
a given CTAN mirror for the duration of an update, a la install-tl.

But I'd really like to have other people test it (especially on Windows
and Mac), to make sure we haven't introduced new bugs.  As I wrote
before, just grab the current rev of tlmgr.pl from
http://tug.org/svn/texlive/trunk/Master/texmf/scripts/texlive/ and put
it in your tree in that same location, texmf/scripts/texlive.

If you can test the GUI version, also take the new tlmgrgui-real.pl from
